RapidSSL® is a leading provider of fast and easy SSL certificates. This low-cost certificate offers standard up to 256-bit encryption and is one of the most popular Domain Validated (DV) wildcard SSL certificates in the world.

It’s known for lightning fast issuance and an unbeatable price. Also, 99+% of all browsers recognize this certificate. The RapidSSL wildcard SSL certificate is an ideal solution for entry-level websites that need to protect one main domain (both www and non-www) along with their subdomains (i.e. theSSLstore.com, mail.theSSLstore.com, admin.theSSLstore.com, retail.theSSLstore.com, etc.)


Assurance & Authentication 


It's quick, cost-effective & easy to install this wildcard SSL certificate, and this solution offers a basic level of assurance to site users by displaying https and activating the little padlock icon in the URL space of web browsers.

You'll also have access to a static trust seal (or trust mark) that you can download and display on your website.



Security & Encryption


The RapidSSL® wildcard is a strong up to 256-bit industry-standard SSL certificate, making it an ideal solution for light ecommerce sites or a great way to safely secure something like a customer login page.



SAN & Multi-Domain Support


The RapidSSL wildcard secures one main domain and an unlimited number of subdomains. For example, this certificate will secure www.theSSLstore.com and all subdomains that are .thesslstore.com (mail.theSSLstore.com, admin.theSSLstore.com, server.theSSLstore.com, etc.)

If you have the need to secure multiple domains with one certificate (i.e. www.domain.com and www.domain.net), the cheapest solution would be a GeoTrust True BusinessID Multi-Domain (SAN/UCC) certificate, as RapidSSL does not offer a multi-domain solution.

Site Seal


With this wildcard cert, you get to display a static site seal, to show off that your website is protected by this highly recognized SSL brand. It says "Secured by RapidSSL®" right on it. Static site seals are quick & easy to install, however they are not "clickable."

Therefore, they will not show additional verification information related to your company. It also does not display any dynamic or real-time data related to your site’s security, unlike some of our other wildcard options.





With this product, you get a $10,000 warranty. This means that if your site was improperly validated, actually not secured and/or issued to a fraudulent site by this Certificate Authority (CA), etc., RapidSSL would compensate the end user of the site or victim up to $10,000 for any losses or damages incurred.

These warranties are geared towards protecting your customers and to establish credibility of the site owner, giving users the confidence they need to make purchases on your site.
